Ethiopia: Pilot Hijacked Our Military Helicopter to Eritrea

The Ethiopian Defense Ministry charges that a pilot hijacked to Eritrea an attack helicopter which went missing a few days ago.

In a statement issued late Monday the ministry said the pilot of the Ethiopian attack helicopter forced his co-pilot and technician to land in Eritrean territory.

The helicopter was conducting a routine training flight when it disappeared on Friday morning, prompting a massive military search across northern Ethiopia.

It's unusual for Ethiopian army personnel to flee to Eritrea though Eritrean troops often across the border into Ethiopia, citing harsh conditions and forced conscription into the military.

Relations between Eritrea and Ethiopia have been consistently strained since Eritrea gained its independence from the Addis Ababa government in 1993 following a 30-year guerrilla war.

US confirms Ethiopian C-130E Hercules donation

Written by defenceWeb, Friday, 27 February 2015  


United States embassy officials in Addis Ababa have confirmed that the Ethiopian government has received a single Lockheed C-130E Hercules transport aircraft from the United States for tactical airlift of troops and equipment to support Ethiopian participation in AU and UN peacekeeping operations.

The aircraft was previously operated by the Puerto Rico National Guard where it was flown by the 198th Airlift Squadron, according to Air Forces Daily. After retirement from the US Air Force, it was put in storage at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, in September, 2013, having flown a total of 22 739 flight hours. Early the following year it was taken out of storage and prepared for delivery to Ethiopia. The aircraft in early June 2014 flew to Ethiopia, making stops in Canada and the United Kingdom.

A statement from the US embassy in Addis Ababa said the donation came with full training support for Ethiopian pilots, technicians and engineers with specially focused programmes on navigation and maintenance processes. An embassy spokesperson said there are no existing plans to provide any additional aircraft.

The Ethiopian Air Force’s 15 Squadron has flown C-130s since 1998 when it received two former US Air Force C-130Bs and later two commercial L100-30 variants that were previously operated by the Ethiopian Government. It is not clear if the aircraft are still operational.

The C-130 is a welcome boost to the Ethiopian Air Force after it lost an Antonov An-12 in a crash at Mogadishu International Airport on 9 August 2013. The aircraft was delivering ammunition to help the Somali government combat al Shabaab militants.


The Ethiopian Air Force has also lost a number of aircraft to neighbouring Eritrea and Kenya through defecting pilots and technicians. In December, a senior air force pilot, his co-pilot and a technician escaped Ethiopia in the Mi-35 attack helicopter they were flying on a training mission and landed in the Eritrean town of Aishidada where they were granted political asylum. Since last year, Ethiopia has been trying to use diplomatic channels at various levels to secure the return of its aircraft but to no avail.

US to supply French-made APCs to African countries

Jeremy Binnie, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
06 October 2015




he US military's Africa Command (AFRICOM) has ordered ACMAT Bastion armoured personnel carriers (APCs) for several African countries via the US company Mack Defense.

The USD25 million contract was announced on 25 September when the US Department of Defense said that Mack Defense will supply 62 APCs to Cameroon, Ethiopia, Somalia, Tunisia, and Uganda on behalf of AFRICOM, but did not identify the vehicles or say how many each country will receive.

Mack Defense told IHS Jane's on 6 October that all the vehicles are Bastion APCs: a type made by the French company ACMAT, which is owned by Renault Trucks Defense. Mack Defense and Renault Trucks Defense are part of the Volvo group.

The original Bastion APC consists of the chassis from ACMAT's VLRA range fitted with an armoured body that offers protection up to the STANAG 4569 standard. It is now also available with a new high-mobility chassis with independent suspension. It has a gross vehicle weight of 12 tonnes and can carry up to 10 people, including the driver.

Mack Defense said 32 Bastion APCs will be delivered to Somalia next year, 17 for the Ugandan contingent of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and another 13 for AMISOM's Somali contingent. (The Somali National Army operates alongside AMISOM, but is not formally part of the force.)

Four will be delivered to Tunisia, 15 to Cameroon, and 12 to Ethiopia before the end of October 2016, according to Mack Defense. All the countries will also receive at least one spares kit.

Ethiopia and US Sign New Agreement, Enhance Security Cooperation
April 7, 2016





Senior defense and government officials from the U.S. and Ethiopia held the sixth annual Bilateral Defense Committee March 31, 2016, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The ministerial-level meeting produced a new agreement outlining the cross-exchange of logistics, services, supplies, and support between the nations, as well as a plan for future security cooperation activities designed to meet mutual defense priorities.

Ethiopian attendees included Gen. Samora Yunis, Ethiopian National Defence Force (ENDF) Chief of the General Staff, and Defence Minister Siraj Fegessa. U.S. attendees included Amanda Dory, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for African Affairs, U.S. Ambassador to Ethiopia Patricia M. Haslach, Gen. David Rodriguez, U.S. Africa Command commander, and Maj. Gen. Mark Stammer, Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa commander.

After a brief coffee ceremony, Minister Siraj opened the meeting by reaffirming Ethiopia’s commitment to securing a safer East African region and continuing its partnership with the U.S. for years to come.

“I look forward to continuing the close cooperation of our two defense forces. I have no doubts that we will turn that into a truly successful endeavor,” said Siraj. “We have worked together for over 100 years, and I know this will continue with lasting success and friendship between us.”

Dory echoed the importance of a long-lasting partnership and bilateral support between the U.S. and Ethiopia.

“Ethiopia’s continued commitment to supporting the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and their unwavering support to the United Nations Peace Operations goes to show just how progressive and strong Ethiopia is,” said Dory. “Neutralizing Al-Shabaab is a high priority for both the U.S. and Ethiopia, and working together plays a key role in peace and security.”

Rodriguez opened the plenary sessions by leading discussions on counterterrorism cooperation, Somalia security sector reform cooperation and intelligence sharing.

“We remain strongly committed to supporting AMISOM and its efforts in Somalia,” said Rodriguez. “Key to these efforts is the resumption of the AMISOM offensive Operation Juba Corridor (OJC).”

OJC is aimed at further degrading the Al-Shabaab violent extremist organization by removing them from their strong holds in multiple regions of Somalia. Since the start of OJC, the ENDF and other AMISOM forces have recovered major towns and villages in Somalia.

“Support between the Ethiopians and the U.S. will continue to be broad ranging, and will include equipment, training, advisory support, information sharing, and logistics support,” said Rodriguez. “We will also continue to look for new opportunities where the U.S. can leverage additional resources to boost AMISOM capabilities.”

The officials also discussed other regional issues including the Islamic State, ENDF support to United Nations peace support operations, impacts of drought in Ethiopia, air mobility and communications support, and defense health cooperation.

Ethiopia turns S-75 SAMs into self-propelled systems

Jeremy Binnie, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
04 May 2016

Ethiopia is converting some of its S-75 (SA-2 'Guideline') surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) into mobile systems by mounting them on the hulls of T-54/55 tanks.

A photograph of one of the S-75 launchers mounted on a T-54/55 hull was published by the Somali news website Garowe Online on 19 April to accompany a story about the president of Somalia's Puntland region visiting Ethiopia's Gafat Armament Industry, which is part of the military-run Metals and Engineering Corporation (METEC).

Other photographs showed missiles for the S-75 system at the same industrial complex.

Ethiopia has had S-75 systems since the 1970s, some of which are still deployed at three fixed sites around Addis Ababa, its S-125 (SA-3 'Goa') systems deployed closer to the Eritrean border to defend strategic locations.
